I just finished reading The Right Stuff which is an amazing account of early fighter jet test pilots, breaking the speed of sound, and the space race. While reading this book you feel like you are inside the fighter jet pilot clique and know all about the right stuff.

Before this I read another book by Tom Wolfe, The Bonfire of the Vanities. It was a fun read, but my favorite Tom Wolfe (fictional) book has got to be A Man in Full. It is definitely a must read.
